I am an incoming graduate student in math at the University of Chicago. I received my undergraduate degree in math and cello performance last May from Indiana University. During my undergraduate years, I received national awards (the Goldwater scholarship, a top 25 finish in the Putnam exam), and high recognition from the IU math department (the Ciprian Foias Prize, the Marie S. Wilcox scholarship). In high school, I scored a 2400 on the SAT, and earned a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam from self study. I also received a 5 on the AP Statistics exam.
I have teaching experience, as well. I spent a summer teaching at a high school math camp, I have been a coach for the Georgia state math team for a few years now, and I was a grader for the IU math department. I've tutored many people I've encountered, including friends, roommates, and people who've sat next to me on trains, aside from people who have contacted me for my services. And I've been assistant-teaching math online for more than three years. I'm used to people of many levels, from people struggling with prealgebra to people who do well at national and international math competition. I'm comfortable with just about any level of math from middle school through advanced undergraduate courses. The level is not important---I'm just here to help you learn!
I'm also available to tutor music theory. My grades in my first two semesters of the IU theory sequence were both A+; I earned A's in subsequent honors theory courses. I'd be happy to tutor through the first year of undergraduate music theory.
I'm willing to tutor groups. I will be available in the Chicago area starting in late September.
